Make the chrono dampener a chrono booster instead which increases speed and production of all units within range.

"Nerds have a really complicated relationship with change: Change is awesome when WE'RE the ones doing it. As soon as change is coming from outside of us it becomes untrustworthy and it threatens what we think of is the familiar."

Soulripper can pick up units and experimentals like a dropship. And also shoot other gunships.
Galaxy Class Battleship now shoots Trebuchet shells, and the Summit also shoots Demolisher shells
- Make experimentals and select other units able to get enhancements (like coms can, but different actual enhancements)
- Add a T3 tactical nuke plane to each faction - the plane would build them manually, be slow-moving, could target land or air (ie: to blow up ASF swarms), and the tactical nuke could be intercepted by TMD and SMD
- Significantly increase aeon strategic bomber's weapon damage, lower its firing rate, and heavily nerf its AOE #specialization

Add RAS upgrade to all units, the lower the HP, the higher the production/mass cost rate.
Shards have their weapon changed to single, homing missile. Same stats, just vastly increased hit-chance.
Sparkies, have a small (2-5hp/sec) regen at vet 0. Not so unusual for a "Field Engineer"
remove torp def from cyran t2 sub.
none of which is particularly ridiculous, but hey.
Aircraft have limited ammo and need to rearm at air staging.
(I'd adjust costs as well but that's against the rules)
Mass can only be stored locally. Each player no longer has a "bank" of mass (represented by the mass bar--you would permanently have a completely empty mass bar). Mass extractors leave reclaim around them. Mass needs to be gathered by engineers and brought to a factory in order to spend it at that factory (or brought to mass storage building, and buildings/engineers near the storage could feed from it)
Every player would have to establish "supply lines" in order to exploit mexes. Which would create a whole new dimension in terms of setting up logistics and for raiding your opponents. It would create incentive to put factories near mass (e.g., build a factory near reclaim field to make engineers to grab the reclaim + be a convenient place to spend the mass on new units, or build a factory next to a mex so you don't have to transfer the mass anywhere, it always gets spent immediately).
There would probably need to be new commands (e.g. assist command, ferry command, patrol command, etc.) so you can set up these supply lines. Maybe it could be done just with the "assist" command, like if you assist a mex and then assist a factory, the engineer knows it has to go back and forth between the two to deliver mass.
if you have so much spam that its mass value is worth the same ammount as an exp,allow the spam to merge in to an exp
give mercies insta kill ability
queuing with a newbie to show him the beauty of tmm and meeting tagada be like:
Remove all torpedo launchers from UEF t2 torp boat and install a plasma beam from the t3 battlecruiser instead
who builds torpedo tubes t2?
nobody needs them and cry in the corner. need to be able to dive like , t3kibran torpedo tubes
